After releasing their debut EP, Take The Kids Off Broadway, last spring Los Angeles psych-pop duo Foxygen are prepping their new full-length, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic, for a January 2013 release via Jagjaguwar. The album was recorded in just one week at Richard Swift’s (of the Shins) National Freedom studio in Oregon.
Today, they are sharing their sweet new jam “Shuggie,” which deftly shifts from a mellow psychedelic rock song into a ’70s funk track and back again. Check it out, below.
Foxygen is set to perform during the 2012 CMJ Music Marathon several times. Be sure to catch one of their upcoming sets at Pianos, Mercury Lounge or FUZZNYC. They are also opening for Of Montreal on tour this December.
